In 2011, I convinced Chad to let me adopt Ziggy from the pound. Ziggy was a gorgeous Italian Greyhound Mini Pincher mix. He was 10 years old at the time. We took him on many cross country trips and lived with him in San Diego for exactly one year. We had the pleasure of spending 5 amazing years with Ziggy. He passed on in February 2016 at the age of 15.
